I'm surprised nobody mentioned Soft errors, except the PP. Alpha particles comes not only from space, but like cellular radiation and everybody fearing the tower while under inverse square law the danger is the phone, alpha particles can come from the chip package.

It's pretty rare, but I have already seen it with recent chips from a manufacturer. The manufacturer acknowledged afterward before the evidence: high exception rate, way higher than what avionics get up in the sky. Material of the package was changed and life went on with usual software bugs..
